On April 1, during a rally in Wardha, Modi had attacked Pawar and said the latter was losing his grip on the NCP due to family feuds led by nephew and former Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar.

“How can one who does not have a family understand what family is?” a statement issued by the NCP quoted Pawar as saying at Friday’s rally.

Stating that the government was not serious about the drought in the state, he said, “My grandson Rohit provided water by tankers in Karjat in Ahmednagar. This in fact is the government’s job. But we are with the people.”
